I stumbled across a Groupon for a stay at the Catalina Canyon Resort & Spa last year, and thought what the heck. I have lived most of my life in California, but never traveled to Catalina Island. We took the Catalina Flyer (another Groupon) to the Island. When we got to Avalon, it took a little looking to find the... More

I booked this on the phone through a travel program, so didn't get to go online to take a look. It appears to be either a renovation or new construction or a little of both. We were on the second floor. Rooms are pleasant; high ceiling, nice balcony. Refrigerator, coffee maker and microwave. Bed was comfy, but my reading light... More

It looks like this hotel is the one chosen by obnoxious drunk college kids to hang out on a Monday. No enforcement apparently from the hotel on 10 pm no noise policy. Stay away from this hell hole if you plan to come on vacation with your family...

Was reluctant to stay here because of a few bad reviews but I and my family were pleasantly surprised. The rooms were newly renovated and very nice. The shuttle back and forth to town was great since my sister in law can't walk long distances. I would highly recommend to anyone especially young families because of the pool and beautiful... More

My husband and I were initially reluctant to stay at this hotel, to our great surprise we were so pleased! The rooms have been renovated, but there is still work to be done both in the public areas and the grounds. I would like to compliment both Nicole the manager and Tyler for their exception service. Also, if you get... More

The complimentary shuttle picked us up at the marina and dropped us off at the hotel. The hotel was clean and located in a great spot. The desk staff seemed distracted and disconnected, but check in was easy. Our room was nice looking, decorated in a modern style. The reading lights connected to the headboard were both broken.

This hotel is located about one mile from the water front. It is an easy walk down to town and a little bit tougher on the walk up hill ( a consideration if you have young children or mobility issues). They have a shuttle that runs until around 7:30 pm but the hours (as we learned with a bagful of... More

Catalina Canyon Resort is exceptionally good value and a fantastic stay for families or anyone, we had a great renovated room which was quiet and had courtyard view. The area is peaceful and as it's up on the hill you may think it's too far away but their own shuttle car goes constantly all day up and back to the... More
